Love Home and Planet; or, Getting Naturally Clean

So, as ya’ll may remember, I am a product tester for Influenster and it is a ton a fun! The latest round of products came from Love, Home and Planet and it has been an interesting ride. Prior to receiving my box, I got an email from Influester with the subject “Prepare to post like

You’re Doing It Wrong: Til It Happens to You

Okay ya’ll, take a seat because we’re going to do some real talk here and this one is not easy for me. I am posting here, what will likely be the last sneak preview of my new book before it is completed and ready to go to print. Like I do with most of the

Instant Blogger, Just Add Food

I learned a powerful lesson about blogging yesterday and that was that you should never do it on an empty stomach. I was writing while quite hangry yesterday and it resulted in a very interesting post that I refused to delete and leave alone. I was in some kind of mood and I stand by

The service was around until 2016 when it was bought by Snapchat and shut down to make way for bitmojis. Here’s my little guy: Anyway, thanks to Facebook memories, I was reminded about Bitstrips

Josh’s Random Gift Ideas From Amazon

It’s fairly safe to say that I spend an OBSCENE amount of time shopping on Amazon. This is primarily because it brings me closer to my dream of never having to leave my house again and still get everything I want. I’m not the biggest fan of going anywhere near shopping centers as we get
